Beauty: Dry Winter Skin Routine

It's that time of the year again, at least for myself and anyone with dry skin.  If you don't have dry skin then I feel a whole lot of jealousy towards you because you are so lucky!  I have been working very hard at managing my dry skin, mostly on my face.  I need to tackle it all, but for now, my face is what is visible and what is my priority.  I have been trying a ton of products and think I have settled into a really good routine of what works for me and what I can stick with longterm.

Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence - This is one of two of the most important steps IMHO.  After I wash, I spray this about 3-4 times all over my face and neck.  If I feel a little dirty, I will use a cotton round and take some off like a toner, but always make sure to leave at least a little bit of this on the skin.  It is key!

Beauty Counter Every Night PM Hydrating Cream - While the Tata Harper spray is still damp on my skin, I apply two pumps of this lotion to my face and neck.  This is such a rich, delicious cream, that I use it both day and night.

Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Rejuvenating Eye Treatment Gel - This is the newer version of what I have pictured above.  I haven't had to replace this in so long because it literally lasts forever.  Neiman Marcus always gives out samples, and they alone can last me two to three weeks.  I pat this all over my under eye and side of my eye with my ring finger.  It's the most deliciously moisturizing anti-aging eye cream I have found.  This is hands down the BEST eye cream if you have dry skin, or if you don't.  

Jojoba Oil - While my eye cream is setting, I put a few drops of this all over my face and neck.  This is super rich, so a tiny bit goes pretty far.  Some times I do this after the Tata Harper spray and before my PM lotion, it just depends on my mood and if I remember to.

Bobbi Brown Extra Soothing Balm - This was one of those products I just wasn't sold on.  I stocked up last time I was in King of Prussia.  If you're at the Nordstrom there, stop by Bobbi and ask for Victoria, she is the and totally helpful and honest!  She convinced me that I would regret not getting this and she was right.  It's fanfreakingtastic and I'm so thankful that she loaded me up on samples that I can travel with or throw in my purse.  This product is a one stop shop for your face.  I rub a tiny bit between my fingers and put it on my dryest spots.  My skin around the top sides of my face tends to flake so I have been using this daily there and noticing a huge difference.  It's a great dryness spot treatment that isn't greasy or slippery and works well both under and over makeup.

Vaseline Lip Therapy -  I received a tin of this magical little goodie from Inlfuenster and I quickly fell in love.  I used to use regular old Vaseline on my lips and any dry skin on my hands or body, but this has totally replaced it.  I love that it is made for lips.  It's super moisturizing and I put in on every night before bed and got a second tin of it to keep in my purse.  I put it on my dry cuticles and I have been spot treating my legs with it.  I know it is meant for lips, but it is such a versatile product.

Is there any other magical product that I am missing? I feel like I have really got the dry skin routine down this Winter, so hopefully I won't look like a hot mess if I run into you!

Don't forget tomorrow is the Wino Wednesday linkup AND the first day of the #lovelystyledlife series on Instagram! We hope you will join us!

Thank you for reading and have a fabulous day!  -xx

  2. My face is still an oil slick, but the rest of my skin is as dry as a desert *go figure*. Vaseline is always a great go-to, and I need to check out that rejuvenating eye treatment <3
